The picture on this page repre- 
sents the old school house occupied 
by the, girls in 1885, at St. Michael's 
Mission. The boys were lodged in 
a log; school-house. 

Most of those boys and girls are 
still living, fathers and mothers of 
families. This picture will recall 

a number have falleu into the hands 
of politicians, others have learned to 
indulge in the ruinous drink fire- 
water: while, others still, have made 
use of the pernicious law, which 
breaks up the marriagediohds. family

people, some thii'TV years a^o. They, 
then, had l\orses. cattle, noo-s and 
poidtry: good clothing, enough to

of St. Michael.

church. Does this mean that «.• 
shall have a railroad around St. Ms- 
haei's this year? So they say. 

We earnestly, wish again, to re- 
mind our patrons of the '-Eyanpaha" 
that, when they send in their snh- 
scripiion. to please give us the cof- 

I reel address, also the County, or.

the youthful! and happy days spent 
at St., Michael's Mission, wnen thev 
wore oroniisittu- youno boys and 
girls, full of bnoht hojjy«; as our fu- 
ture men and women, to stand by tne 
cause of religion and civilization. 

To the right of tne boys is, Major 
Cramsie. who was then Agent, and 
an energetic and successful 1 worker 
among the Indians, as was also, his 
predecessor. Major McLaughlin. 
Both these men brought the Indians 
to a high standard of civilization, if, 
onlv they had remained faithful to 
the advice and teaching of those two 
highly esteemed Agents, who were 
truly interested in the welfare of the 

Now. the Indians have become 
r.iii/.ens. and many do, just as they 
please. Some have listened to the 
siren's voice leading to destruction; 

eat and good farms from the produce 
of which, they always had some- 
thing, to bring to market, and uuis. 
made a fairly good living. Now it 
is different, tne <niange is not for 
the better. 



We have three churches hnre for 
the Indians, Our Christmas and 
New- Years celebration was at St. 
Michael's and the Sisters' church. 
The Indians here sing Gregorian 
Mass. according to the wishes of the 
Holy Father. And how they do 
sing! At St. Michael's they put 
heart and soul into the singing 
When t'ne whole congregation sings 
the "Missa In Festis Solemnibus," 
their sturdy and melodious voices 
can be heard quite a distance in the 

Presents from ti-je. Christmas ttee; vie- 
great object of joy and anxious ex- 
pectation, especially for the children. 
But no one was forgotten. Besides 
presents, there was an abundance of 
candy, nuts and apnles. Even Fa- 
ttier Jerome received from the tree 
a sack containing ten dollars. 

We received a large phonograph 
and some fifteen records for Christ- 
mas. The children of our school 
enjoy the music, speaking &c. It is 
a real recreation for them, they 
never tire listening. 

We are indebted for this gift to 
the generosity of Rev. Father Mc- 
Donald of Michigan Citv, N. Dak. 

During the past year, the Railroad 
people have done some surveying 
around St. Michael's Mission. Thev 

It often happens that subscribers 
live in a distant, out of the way little 
camp, perhaps in the Bad lands, with 
a little Postoffice in South Dakota, 
where the mail has to be sent by 
way of Sioux City, Iowa, Nebraska 
and then, back into South Dakota 

It would save us a great deal of 
annoyance, if you take the trouble, 
to write one or two more words out 
the address, so please do it.
